. if you don't believe me, look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% verses russia at 4%. china at 7% to 8%. we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get us working. he's put us on a road to europe. europe doesn't work in europe. i want to get us back to being america where people come here, build enterprises here. we fulfill american dreams. we keep the hope alive in america. [ cheers and applause ] and this matters. you know this matters. this counts. it counts for the 23 million people struggling to get a job, getting a better job today. it counts for the young peoe. today we wonder whether that's true. the majority of americans don't think that's the case. this matters. there's one more sense in which it matters. that's what i began with, and that is our military capability. our ability to defend our liberty and the liberty of our friends around the world, with whom we trade and with whom we trade and whose prosperity depends on our trade. i was in poland and got the chance to meet a hero. i came in and he said, mr.
: nicole thank you. dagen: take a look at this. the u.s. economy growing at a very weak 1.3% in the second quarter, revised down from 1.7%. that is, well, lousy. connell: deputy editor at the "wall street journal"'s editorial page is here to tell us it's always the economy, stupid, at least that was your column? >> that's right. and any presidential election one way or another it is going to be about the economy, no matter how hard the candidates try to deny that. the most amazing one perhaps of all time is indeed the incumbent obama who is running as though the economy during his term didn't happen or at least if it happened, it was the fault of somebody who was president four years before him and what he wants to talk about is the economy he's going to create starting in january 13 which will consist of people having green jobs, making windmills and solar panels. i think the american voters are probably getting a little bit frustrated that no one will talk about the economy as it exists right now, dropping to 1.3% in the second quarter. the united states economy is barely, barely moving.
, as the presidential candidates focus on the economy, what do the mixed signals mean? we get perspective from two economists. >> woodruff: then, we go on board navy ships in the persian gulf to watch a massive military exercise aimed at securing the strait of hormuz. >> we need to be prepared to deal with mines go in the water. this exercise is focused on the mine trip and demonstrating our able to clear mines. we have to be able to do that. >> suarez: the chinese communist party ousts a once-powerful politician and prepares to unveil its new leadership. margaret warner has our update. >> woodruff: mark shields and david brooks analyze the weeks news. >> suarez: and from our "american graduate" series, we take an encore look at the story of an eighth grader who turns to journalism to tackle violence in his middle school. >> if i didn't have a-- i would probably be let up with the wrong people and doing the wrong stuff. >> woodruff: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. >> major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> bnsf and carnegie corporation. >> and with the ongoing support o
on persuading voters they can boost the economy. but a key question at the heart of it all-- is the economy slowing, stalling, or perhaps even gaining strength in some ways? new data are sending conflicting signs. republican presidential nominee mitt romney campaigned today at a military academy in pennsylvania. romney promised better jobs for young people like the cadets sitting behind him and a better future for the entire country. >> we're in a very different road than what i think the people of the world expected from the united states of america. and if i'm elected president of this country, i will get us back on a road of growth and prosperity and strength. >> woodruff: today at a campaign event in washington, president obama shared a message of what he called "economic patriotism" tied to a strong middle class. >> but our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. we've still got the workers in the world, the best universities, the best scientists, the best... we got the best stuff. ( laughter ) we just got to bring it together. >> woodruff: consumer confidence is higher of l

the economy likely added 155,000 private payroll jobs this month. we'll bring you the number and get you instant reaction from joel prakken. in corporate news, richard schultz is pressing forward with a possible $11 billion buyout of the retailer. schultz and at least four private equity firms have reportedly started examining the books of the economy. at the same time, he is said to be negotiating individually with the pe firms on the details of how his roughly 20% stake in the company would contribute and what role he might be playing after a buyout. and oracle ceo larry ellison says the company won't be making any major acquisitions during the next couple years. in an interview on "closing bell" yesterday, ellison said he is instead focused on growing organically. he also discussed the dividend. >> that's the decision of the oracle board of directors. i believe we'll gradually increase the dividend as opposed to dublg it or tripling it all at once. nothing dramatic. >> shares of oracle during the last year, take a look at it. 31.65. he's gotten close to the top there, joe. >> all righ

taxes will help grow the economy? >> no. >> ryan's expression back there when he looks over at portman, kind of intriguing. it would be curious what a thought bubble would be going on over there. but it's a little bit of a change for romney. he had often been accusing the president of raising taxes or citing increases, i thinking about the health care law, et cetera. a romney adviser put out a memo yesterday explaining how capital gains are taxed. as they say, if you're explaining how capital gains are taxed, not just calling for different ways of lowering them, if you're simile having to explain it, you're losing. romney has also tried to make china a boogeyman and he did it again in ohio yesterday. >> that when people cheat, that kills jobs. china has cheated. i will not allow that to continue. [ cheers and applause ] >> this is one issue where romney has tried to go on the offense with china since he got on the campaign and frafrmgly the obama campaign has been on the defensive about it which is why when obama is in ohio today he's going to make the amount about ohio. he filed trade

. >> israeli leaders says sanction, hurting the iranian economy were not slowing the clock on iran's pursuit of a nuclear weapon. he warned not just israel, but the security of the entire world is at stake. >> given this record, of iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. who among you would feel safe in the middle east? who would be safe in europe? who'd be safe in america? who'd be safe anywhere? >> despite prime minister netanyahu impassioned speech white house says it's not drawing red line whence it comes to military intervention in iran. i know the president couldn't find the time today to meet face to face with prime minister netanyahu, the white house says it's likely the two men will talk together tomorrow by telephone. >> bret: david lee miller at the united nations. thank you. much more on this with charles krauthammer and the panel coming up. right before rather netanyahu spoke, mahmoud abbas accused vaileisrael of ethnic cleansing. and said the palestinians will apply to the u.n. for nonmember state status. full membership
on domestic issues including the economy and jobs. the second debate on the campus of hofstra university. politico has this piece about jim leher. for the first time in the 2012 campaign, the president and mitt romney will face each other in what many consider the most important even between now and november 6. for the 12th time in the history of debates, jim leher has been asked to serve as moderator making him the most experienced a moderator and the modern history, he is uniquely suited according to his contemporary. at a time when the electorate is as divided as ever and wind -- media scrutiny is -- next is hayley. welcome to the program. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i am one of the people who spend every summer for the last few summers going around the nation asking questions. my main question is, what do people think politically and what they are paying attention to. you say are a third party is relevant, yes, they are. they will never get any kind of support as long as the american people are more interested in things like "dancing with the stars." that is a
, and yes, we have taken it to account the kind of shocks the could apply to economies if and when, which i hope is never, the price of oil and the price of energy was to skyrocket more than it is at the moment. but you could take pretty much any area of the world where there are latin complex, not that want to minimize iran clearly, but all such conflicts could themselves entail economic consequences that we have to be mindful of when we model. i don't want to sort of list those parts of the world where conflicts could arise and would have consequences, but this is, you know, as beckett used to say, this is life and his no cure for that. [laughter] >> next question. >> hello, thank you for your talk this morning. i'm with china centric television in washington, d.c. and my question is regarding china but in relation to the global financial crisis, what policy decisions and actions which are like to see from china in the coming months? >> i think policy decisions have been announced already very much so. i'll distinguish between short-term and medium-term. short term there's an announcement

[cheers and applause] megyn: well, one of the political writers focused on the romney change today is chris stirewalt, fox news digital politics editor. chris, there is a shift in the romney approach. describe exactly what we're seeing. >> well, what you're seeing is a campaign that had previously been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that m

[applause] we will visit for about 40 minutes. when we get started, there are phones on either i'll. we ask that of that the microphone at the appropriate -- we ask that you line up at the microphone at the program time than july 31, 2012 began with the announcement that julian caster would be the keynote speaker at the democratic national convention. the footsteps of several. before mayor castro had uttered the words menudo " gulf, speculation began. -- menudo cookoff, speculation began. july 31 was a port from which the future of texas and possibly the nation was visible. mayor
. we have one set of the economy functioning at a level where the competition is on the wrong level. it needs to be on the level of performance and outcomes. patience if i hear all the time are increasingly frustrated, even distrustful of the health care system. they have limited options and they turn to there're insurance companies and they feel like they are appealing a cell phone bill. they cannot get through. doctors are also frustrated with health care system. we have a system where 46% of doctors say they are burned out, according to a mayo clinic study of the two months ago. when doctors say they are burned out, the performance will not be as good. host: dr. makary, when it comes to accountability, i want to go back to canada to talk about his insurance bills that he received, -- back to kenneth who talked about the insurance bills that he received, etc., should there be a priceless? -- price list? guest: you should be able to find out the average cost of something even before you have paid for it. the medical center at my home town hospital said you could have a heart operat
defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed to, reluctantly. i'm not clear on how mitt romney separates himself from his republican colleagues on
the economy's getting better. i trustresident obama now to lehe ecy. i m who's up against huge unemployment numbers. you can rattle through all the economic data that should not be good for president obama. and yet in three or four states that matter, the tide is switching on those questions. >> don't you think florida is shocking? of those three, i tught florida nine points is the most ki >>nnepoll, florida four points in "the washington post" poll. i've said it for months, any repuican candidate that's losing the state of flori has serious problems. >> willie's right, the economic numbers are huge. the othething that relates is e geer g. inseesuiipia polls. the gender gap is gigantic. why did the romney campaign have as their surrogates bay buchanan and liz cheney and kelly ayotte? because they have a huge gender problem, and they're not addressingt with these daily attacks on the president's so-called es >> ry o"leno" last night. i didn't see the whole thing, but the clips i saw, i don't know. i know that's tough to say, but the relatability issue is constant. >> you know, and there's a
of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem right now remains him. he's not driving a consistent message. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you l
economy has not seen disruptions like some years ago. why? 1989, now each year china has many law school students. that is faster than united states, for better or for worse. [laughter] their commercializing the media. none of them existed in 1989 in china. this provided a stabilizing force for a peaceful transition. the party needs to transform itself before it is too late. there is a serious discussion among social groups talking about legitimacy of the chinese communist party. how could it be possible? because his ambition will never stop. that is an important lesson. this is a critical moment china is experiencing at this conjunction of history. so, in a way, to answer your question, the leadership, in many ways they also sense the of the vulnerability. but it is not clear whether they will really transform the party because it is a very complicated process. there are ethnic issues. again, all of these issues will resurge, plus, the economy, slowed down. that as a result of the political problems and a further revealed the fundamental problems in the system, monopoly, corruption, etc
the economy of iran. he said they've not stopped in deterring the nuclear program that that country is pursuing. he spent much of the speech setting the stage, talking about iranian aggression saying this is what we've seen in iran where they've turned on their own people without a nuclear weapon. what can the world expect if iran is able to obtain a nuclear weapon? an interesting note. he said in his remarks the middle east, europe and america would not be safe. >> yes. this presupposes that iran is not a rational actor or is sometimes described as death call. it's not clear. we've gone through this. i don't know if you were in the late 1990s and early 2000s we went through the same rhetoric with north korea. it it was unthinkable. the world would go through no effort and they couldn't trust them with a bomb, south korea could be destroyed although the touch the button. president clinton said north korea will never use that bomb, because if they do, it will be the end of north korea. netanyahu is clear about the repur repercussions would be for iran if it continues to pursue enrich
in this effort. it's had an effect. oil exports have been curbed, and the iranian economy has been hit hard. it's had an effect on the eco ecy, wust face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program either. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the st year alone iran has doubled the mber oftresn its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomibombs. that'sy pla a clear, red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. [ applause ] re lin'tea to war. red lines prevent war. just look at nato's charter. it made ear that an attack on one membecountry would be considered an aack o all. nato red line heldo k the peace in europe for nearly half a century. president kennedy selt a red lineuring the cuban missile crisis. that red line also prevented war and helped preserve the peace for decas. in fact, it' tai t place red lines that's often invited aggression. if the western powers had drawn clear red lines during the 1930s, i believe they would have stopped nazi aggression and world waii might have be
economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> but not all the numbers paint a gloomy picture. the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011 meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since the president's inauguration. slightly more than the number lost in that same period. but the president said there's still measuring work to do. >> we're not where we need to be. not yet. we've got a lot more folks who have to get back to work. we've got a lot more work to do to make the middle class secure again. but the question is, who's plan is better for you? >> an obama win in republican-leaning virginia could deal romney a crushing blow. the president won here four years ago becoming the first democrat to do so since lyndon johnson. but in the state the military vote is not the only game in town. football fans are everywhere. so it's no surprise a reporter asked romney about the deal to end the dispute between the nfl and its referees. a question romney appeared to fumble. >> what do you think about the nfl refs? >> i sure hope they do. >> well, the refs will be back and
with government -- >> we had a downturn in the economy. we of hard times, people looking for work and not able to find jobs. >> 65% of federal spending going to individual payments. it may not sound good, but we have created a welfare state. >> to blame it all on president obama is even worse. to declare the president of the united states is manipulating so people will stay and vote democrat? i think that is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. if such a cynical view of the presidency and of government. that cannot possibly reflect -- >> your response? >> i think a far better approach than a dependency is removing the barrier the federal government puts in place to small businesses and allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive. >> what barriers? >> i am very happy to discuss the various. >> i wish she would. >> let him finish and make his point, then you can respond. >> what texans are looking for, and what is inherent in the east coast of texas, is that we are not looking for handouts. we're looking for the chance to the entrepreneur is, to work to achieve. think there have
of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i thi
, handful decisions are but we're going to have to face them spent fixing the economy sunday at 8 p.m. on c-span's q. and a. >> next a form on the 2012 elections focusing on demographics, the economy and a center for american progress report on how the presidential candidates can get the electoral votes they need to win. we wished as much of the hour and have even as we can until our live coverage at nine eastern. >> good afternoon, everyone. my name is daniella gibbs leger and i'm vice president for american values and newt gingrich are at the center for american progress. i want to thank you for joining us. for the past, rogue demographics, economics and voter registration, voter ideology in the 2012 election. and i want to wish you all paid happy voter registration day. i'm sure everyone in this room s registered to vote. this is being cohosted by two fantastic teams. if we are just a few weeks before the election and i know that may seem like a very short time but in politics it's a lifetime. we were interested in taking down into what is actually happening in the states. what trends we
at a military acted any many pennsylvania romney hammered away at the president over the economy. >> i have to tell you that i don't know how a single person who goes to this institution could consider voting for the incumbent for president. i say that for this reason. if they want to go in the military, why, he is planning on cutting our military by about $1 trillion over the next decade. if they want to go on to either get a job directly or go on to a four-year college and come out with a gee, you know that 50% of kids coming out of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president will use his ample rhetorical g
elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward allies. we pointed out that when he made those kinds of statements that suggested the u.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to e
to which they are pumping new cash into the economy which was information that came out last night contributed to a good day in the shanghai stock market, up 2%, it's done horribly for many, many, many months, is that chinese cash injection a big surprise in the same sense that the fed's cash injection was always big surprise? >> i think them coming out and saying that -- affirm something that some people thought, just like people thought there was going to be qe-3 but it wasn't until they affirmed it and we saw stocks take off again. we saw qe 1, qe-2, qe-qe-3. look at our poverty rate, our unemployment rate. that's not a recovery. >> housing prices are getting better. >> that's a bubble. incomes aren't going up. >> housing is in a hugh bubble? >> look at what happened to mortgage rates. >> this is literally unfounded. you're combining these really big stories about poverty which is all legitimate debate to have with a shorter term story with respect to what's happening in the market and i would add after qe 1, after qe-2 and now qe-3, the initial reaction was stocks turned lower.
't push the economy but can push foreign affairs. different story from our commander in afghanistan and the guy who runs afghanistan as well despite what the president said about al-qaida, they have bad news. >> al-qaida has come back and a resilient organization. they are not here in large numbers . they don't have to be anymore in large numbers. >> the reason for nato invasion was terrorism . terrorism has not gone away. it has increased. >> steve: that is not helpful for the president and his men. look what he's doing with foreign policy. >> gretchen: yesterday. paul ryan from wisconsin was asked about president obama's foreign policy and this is what he had to say. >> they are sponse was slow and confused and inconsistent and part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes . >> steve: what is happening right now in the middle east is the ugly fruits of the bum pumforeign policy. 20,000 killed and iran on the brink of having a atom bomb and russia thumb their nose . >> eric: the interview last night with karzai. terrorist attacks h
economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to sucssthis country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to help themselves. but we do believe in sothing called opportunity. we do believe in a country where hard work pays off, where responsibility is rewarded, where everyone gets a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody plays by the same rules. we believe in america where no matter what you look ke, no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, u n make it if y.
